Milligan’s Pond-Area Development Seeking Rezoning
Yonge & Little Proposal Also Asking for More Density
City Hall is being asked to mull over a mid-rise in west Barrie.
A presentation in front of council on Monday evening had officials considering a by-law change that could allow for an 8-storey apartment building to be built at Dunlop and Boys Streets.
The developers are asking the city allow the lands to be rezoned to allow for more density than is usually allowed in this part of town.
The structure would come with 96 one- and two-bedroom units, while there would also be ground floor commercial facilities.
Environmentally protected lands at Milligan’s Pond and Bunker’s Creek, just behind the proposed site, would continue to be protected.
A similar ask was made of Barrie City Council for a proposal at the corner of Yonge and Little; the development would boast 153 residential units made up of townhouses and two four-storey blocks. This proposal also requires rezoning to allow for the density required.
Both requests will be debated and discussed by council with the help of staff reports, with a decision to come at a later date.
